Astronaut Scott Kelly Breaks Record for Most Time in Space
The NASA announcement:
"Just before the 15th anniversary of continuous human presence on the International Space Station on Nov. 2, 2015, U.S. astronaut and commander of the current Expedition 45 crew, Scott Kelly, is breaking spaceflight records. On Friday, Oct. 16, Kelly begins his 383rd day living in space, surpassing U.S. astronaut Mike Fincke’s record."
European Space Agency astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti took this photograph from the International Space Station and posted it to social media on Jan. 30, 2015. Cristoforetti wrote, "A spectacular flyover of the Gulf of Aden and the Horn of Africa. #HelloEarth"

Even the most hardened New Yorker has to be in awe of this image of the Big Apple. Tweeted Scott Kelly when he posted this photo last year, "Good morning #Manhattan! #bigapple #YearInSpace,"
